Delicious. Lots of cassis and licorice on the nose, then big fruit, rich and concentrated. My first Block One and certainly the finest Sineann Cab I've enjoyed to date. Best after a long decant or on Day 2.
Sineann Block One Cab (02 -12) plus some others (My Home): A bit of a disappointing showing on this one. Perhaps in an off stage. The nose shows a lot of tarragon a some cassis and oak. Nice texture which makes me think there is potential to return to its beauty that it had on release. Lots of tannins. Black licorice. Just not a lot of fruit. It's good, but not at the quality I hoped for.
Big, bold, but elegant. Decanted 3 hrs, showed really well. Large fruit, but not jammy or over ripe. Complex mid palate with lots of different notes poking out. Always present is the oak, but not obtrusive. Looking forward to more from this in the next couple years.
